Minister of State at the Department of the Environment (Mr. Connolly) Minister of State at the Department of the Environment (Mr. Connolly)
Minister of State at the Department of the Environment (Mr. Connolly): I would refer the Deputy to the reply to Question No. 14 of 31 May, 1990.
An amount of £3.8 million of internal housing capital receipts of a number of housing authorities surplus to their housing allocation, was transferred to fund some of their road works programme. An equivalent amount of Exchequer funds for roads was transferred to the housing programme of other authorities with shortfalls in their internal housing capital receipts. This arrangement does not affect actual expenditure on either the local authority housing programme or the roads programme.
